Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

The Massage Place
The certified therapists at The Massage Place have a lot of skills, but their most important asset might be their willingness to listen. At the beginning of your appointment, you'll be asked which areas hurt the most. Then, throughout the massage, the therapist will listen to your body's responses and keep an eye out for which parts to concentrate on. To address stiffness from injuries or thousand-year mummifications, the team draws upon modalities that range from Swedish massage to intensive trigger-point therapy.
